Re: KC brakes in 1959?

Tim;

Thanks for sharing the photo. Definitely KC brakes. Without knowing the photographer and his system for documentation, I think we have to be very skeptical about the photo date. I can't make out any reweigh data on that relatively low-res jpeg, but perhaps spotting features on the wood-sheathed ART reefers in the background could help date it. But 1959? I doubt it.

Regards, Rob Adams
